We don't just work here. We live here, too.

For years, Kaizen CPA has provided CPA services for the people and small businesses of Lake Zurich, Deer Park, Kildeer, and the surrounding townships in the area. From back-office solutions to payroll to making sure a small business has a chance to succeed and grow, we’ve loved getting to know the folks behind the businesses in Lake Zurich. After all, we don’t just work here, we live here too.

In our time in this community, we’ve got the chance to see businesses flourish and grow. We love working with small-town businesses because, with them, it’s all about the story and relationships that make a business great. It’s about building a community. Just a short distance from Downtown, Chicago – Lake Zurich is a great town with several burgeoning businesses. Kaizen CPAs + Advisors is a licensed CPA firm for Lake Zurich small businesses.

You don't have to do it all alone.

Most small business owners in Lake Zurich have to learn their craft, trade, and profession “on the job.” In other words, they learned from working in the business. In most small businesses, the owner is the CEO, CFO, HR chief, sales team, and custodian. Many small business owners don’t know how to minimize their taxes or how to best structure their companies – and many don’t handle cash flow well either.

We provide folks in the Lake Zurich area with sound financial advice to keep them informed all year long – not just during tax season. We also act as business management counsel to keep these businesses inspired along their journey. This, combined with information technology and our proactive approach, helps Lake Zurich businesses grow and succeed. Our clients tell us our education and guidance provide the kind of confidence that allows them to sleep better. In short, we worry about your business financials and upkeep, so you don’t have to.

Working with Kaizen CPAs has been the best experience with any accountant we've ever worked with. Our accountant always has our best interest at heart. He acts as a great financial partner and is a joy to work with. The rest of the crew in the Lake Zurich office has been great any time we've gone in to meet. We highly recommend Kaizen!
